I do remember that I was always told to make sure to take calcium with it so that the body can absorb. So I tend to get a "cal-mag" supplement. Is that still true?

No, I do not believe it is true that you need to take them together. I don't think there's any harm in it, though.

I have used spray and my DH prefers the spray but I prefer the lotion. I haven't bought it at Walmart but Walmart has started carrying so many good brands that I wouldn't be surprised if they had one, now. They carry Natural Calm.


I use this lotion https://www.traceminerals.com/produc...gnesium-lotion



I need lotion, anyway, because I have very dry skin , so this crosses two things off my list with one product. Plus there's no issues with absorption.


General FYI--any magnesium supplement that makes you go to to the bathroom or loosens your stool isn't being well absorbed. It's acting as an osmotic laxative. Which is fine if you need a laxative. But the magnesium is mostly passing right through your GI tract.
